My 11 year old has told me a few times she sometimes gets so mad she wants to scratch herself. She also wrote me a note that said "everything hurts me. Especially my heart". This was after some girls weren't being nice to her. We've tried cbt therapy in the past but did not see any change at all. She would like to speak to a therapist. Does anyone have any insight? Also looking for a therapist for her in lakewood.
Just want to say that I'm so impressed you have an open enough relationship for her to have felt comfortable sharing her feelings with you.
I kept my childhood depression to myself until it turned into dangerous self harm, a full fledged eating disorder etc at the age of 19 I finally got help.
Much hatzlocha and may she feel back to her beautiful self really soon!
